Leica S-Series Greenough Stereo Microscopes

Optimize optical inspections

Available in different versions for diverse needs the S9 stereo microscopes boost efficiency and optimize optical inspections in your production line or Quality Control division, due to:

  • FusionOptics technology with 12 mm depth of field to find details fast
  • High magnification up to 55x and 9:1 zoom for quick changes from overview to details
  • 122 mm working distance for easy sample manipulations under the microscope
  • Integrated, network-camera for easy image sharing

Find details faster with 3x more depth of field

Move the slider and see for yourself how FusionOptics combines larger depth of field with maximum resolution to deliver an amazingly sharp yet highly detailed image, that is impossible to see with other standard stereo microscopes.

With 3x larger depth of field, microscope operators can save time refocusing as they now see every important detail at a glance.

(Note: Image simulation, showing a printed circuit board sample without and with the FusionOptics effect, perceived when looking through the oculars.)

Stereo Microscope without FusionOptics
S9 Series Microscopes with FusionOptics

Quick magnification change

Operators can effortlessly switch from overview to detail with the uniquely high 9:1 zoom, speeding up inspection and manipulation.

Apo corrected zoom optics with 55x magnification reveal new details in your sample. 

With fewer adjustments of zoom or focus, operators’ concentration on the sample is higher, as they face less interruptions. Throughput will increase naturally.

Easy sample manipulation with maximum working distance

Sample inspection and manipulation under the microscope can be conveniently performed with the 122 mm working distance of all S9 stereo microscopes.

Enjoy working with more space for your tools under the microscope lense – sometimes every mm counts.

The S series from Leica: S9 and S APO

S9 E for analog inspections
S9 D with documentation port
S9 i with integrated camera for digital image sharing
S APO with 80x magnification for easy screening and sorting

S9 i with integrated camera

Get connected for faster results

Enjoy working with HD-microscope images live streamed to your PC, HD-monitor, or mobile device. The S9 i stereo microscope has an integrated 10 MP CMOS-camera and can be connected with your facility’s network by Ethernet.

This gives you the opportunity to quickly react to queries, get a second opinion, and discuss problems e.g. via tablet with others.

Results can be documented quickly and reliably in video or image format.

The S9 i delivers real-time images with up to 35 frames.

S9 D with documentation port

Ready for digital imaging when you are

The S9 D gives you the flexibility to add a camera to the microscope and turn it into a digital microscope solution. The built in 50:50 split of the beam path allows oberservation through the eyepieces and digtial imaging at the same time.

Digital functionality provides advantages, when

  • Training operators
  • Sharing results with others
  • Getting a second opinion 
  • Analyzing and measuring details in a sample
  • Documenting results 

The integrated documentation port allows connection to a range of Leica microscope cameras.

S9 E for inspection and rework

Boosting workflow routines 

For analog microscope inspections the S9 E is an indispensable asset. It provides a cost effective solution with fast return on investment.

Like all other S9 stereo microscopes it offers:

  • 12 mm depth of field and FusionOptics technology for a natural viewing perception and fast results
  • 6.1x-55x magnification and a 9:1 zoom range for quick changes from overview to details
  • 122 mm working distance for convenient and ergonomic manipulations under the microscope
  • Click-stops to work with reproducible zoom settings
  • Apochromatically corrected optics to reduce color fringes

S APO unique Greenough Stereo Microscope with high magnification power

The Greenough stereo microscope, S APO with apochromatic 8:1 zoom and high magnification up to 80x is ideal for quality control, cell sorting, and microinjection applications.

With 75 mm working distance it provides easy access to the sample. An ergonomic viewing angle of 38 degrees allows comfortable posture, which helps to increase productivity and reduce fatigue related inspection errors. Adjustable zoom stops allow fast, easy, repeatable measurements and inspections. 

The integrated documentation port allows connection of a digital camera.

Changing perspective is easy

Do you sometimes find it difficult to work only through the eyepieces of the microscope?

With the digital functionality of the S9 i, S9 D, and S APO you don’t have to choose between screen or eyepieces.

You can quickly scan through samples using a large screen view and check on details through the eyepieces of the microscope.
